Kids Take Over the House

We spent a very long afternoon at the new house this weekend taking measurements, testing paint colors, but most importantly letting the kids see our home for the first time and letting them run around like crazy people.

Today's post is of few words. I think I'll let the kids do most of the talking on this one. :) I would still like to do a more formal house tour sometime, where I can explain all of the things we plan to do to the space to make it our own. But in today's vlog you will pretty much see most of the house as the kids walk you through...well more like run you through it! Eric had a meeting with our contractor this morning and he's getting started today. Hooray! I assume he'll start with peeling wallpaper, so by the next time I get a chance to visit the house it will already look a little different!

Looking forward to the next month! I'm usually only able to make it to the house on the weekends, so from now until move in there will probably be something new to see every time. If you are interested in keeping up with the progress I will try to post at least weekly updates here! 

Thank you so much for all of the kind words and encouragement! As you know this is our very first home, and we are trying to enjoy the process even though it can be overwhelming, haha. Walking through the store the other day we couldn't help but say "Thank goodness we're not building a house!" Though I'm not sure we're making far fewer choices anyway. :) And thank goodness Eric and I have similar tastes...I can't imagine doing all of this and having to debate about everything. With a crazy schedule we've had to be pretty flexible. Last night we were picking tiles while miles apart via pictures and text message, haha. Can't wait to share it all with you!

Dude. I am going to have dreams about having a basement like that for Kinley's toys tonight. Love it all! Congrats again!

That is exactly my plan for it! All of the kids' stuff is going downstairs. (I think that's why Evie wanted to see it so much, haha. They know that's their space!) Thanks! :)
